Valentines Day Boxes

Image
Sorry I didn't get these posted prior to valentines; but I was busy making so many.  My daughter needed 12 and I had to make some for the girls at the office. They turned out so cute and I had a blast making them.  The file is a little difficult, the insert for the eyes is exactly the same size as the front of the box.  I cut them down by hand on each side and the bottom; however, if you had time, you could adjust them to be a perfect match. These are both Silhouette files, dogs are #89360 cats are #89222. I enlarged the box part to fit the entire mat and used a pen to write the sentiment. It was a perfect fit for 2 mini bags of M&Ms.

Hope you like these, I am going to try and post more of my creations. So often I just make them and never post.  Have a great Monday.



Twist Pop-Up Card

Image
This week I have been learning to do the new twist pop-up card design.  I recently purchased the Avery Elle; caroling critters stamps & dies. This set is super cute and I thought it would look good on a card like this.  I was right, this came out great.  It was a little tedious with all the folding, but well worth the effort.
I got the instruction from Maymay made it Craft.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TPrvxgXsyu8. I have seen a lot of these videos, but she made it simple.

Thanks for stopping by and hope you try this card design too.

Black and Yellow

This week I am working on getting some card together to give to a friend. I recently purchased the Tim Holtz wildflowers thinlits.  This a DCWV paper pack is several years old, t
he frame is a Silhouette cut. I cut the wildflowers twice and then cut the top to add to the green.  I love the way this turned out.


Hope you come back again.

Easter 2017

Image
This week I am working on making boxes for the grand kids. I found a file I liked in the Silhouette design store, 57567.  I used some digital paper files and made the box 3 times. It cut beautify and went together very well.  I covered the window with acetate and then filled it with candy eggs.  The kids loved them, I know their teachers will to. Hope you enjoyed coming by, see you again soon.

Valentine Card 2

Image
Today I am making another valentine card. I got this one from the design store and then used digital paper from Miss Kate and 2 others. I have really been into using print and cut lately. I just like the way you can always find the right colors to fit my mood that day. I have several sets from Miss Kate. I took an envelope file and cut the top off, trimmed the sides, added color and then cut as 2 pieces.  I really like the way it turned out. Thanks for coming by, hope to see you again soon.  The Silhouette store file numbers are Card 176947, hearts 25254 and envelope 50777.
